Hot mounting is most common used procedure, less expensive, which provide uniform size and shape of test samples. Procedure is simple and short, and it includes placing of sample and mounting compound into mounting press. Press than in a couple of minutes under high temperature and pressure produces solid piece ready for grinding and polishing.

For hot mounting, we can supply both universal hot mounting (glass fiber reinforced phenol formaldehyde resin), as well as specific hot mounting compounds (eg electrically conductive and transparent hot mounting).
